The Infertility Cure:
The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies
by Randine Lewis
So...I started this book a skeptic(to put it mildly) but the more I read the more I believed....maybe it's just wishful thinking...but I found this book for me personally very helpful. After taking the quizes, I found my areas of needed improvment and have been practicing them for almost a month. I feel SO much better. I would highly recommend this book and I am actually going to go to my first acupuncture appointment this month...I'll let you know how it goes!

Book Description
For thousands of years, Chinese women have trusted traditional Chinese medicine to help them conceive. A recent medical study found that women who augmented Western fertility treatments with TCM, traditional Chinese medicine, doubled their chances of a succesful pregnancy. THE INFERTILITY CURE gives women an effective, natural means of supporting their efforts to get pregnant. Based on techniques and remedies drawn from traditional Chinese medicine, this program shows readers how to increase their overall health and well-being, strengthen the organs and systems vital to reproduction, heal specific conditions that may affect fertility, and even support Western-based reproductive technology such as IVF and hormone therapy. Dr. Lewis' easy-to-follow program begins with diagnosis, using an extensive questionnaire to determine each reader's unique diagnostic category. The next three steps involve bringing a woman's body back into balance through diet, acupressure, and Chinese herbs. By following this program, women will be able to create a welcoming physical and emotional environment for what they desire most: a child.

Hi Andrea! This is Michele Roberts, from the BYUI 11th ward. I don't know if you remember me but I found your blog off of Rachel's blog. It sounds like you are trying to get pregnant and having a difficult time. I also had a difficult time. I wanted to share what I did to get pregnant. If you want to email me your email address I will email my story of what I did. It's too long to write here. I can then add you to my blog (I have it set on private). My email is
